I have this business scenario, appreciate your inputs.
User plans short term planning for 4 months and has 3000 products in his list. Current process is he has selection profile for all products and goes through each one product and plans. But there are around 1000 products do not have any Demand/forecast in this 4 months duration because of its ordering pattern.
Is there any way to restrict these 1000 products dynamically? It should be dynamic because it may be 1200 products next month.
Please let me know for more details.
I dont understand why the planner is interactively planning for each product.
Anyways based on your question, I would suggest the business to use an identifier for the products which have demand vs the ones which dont.
The reason I am assuming that the products do not have forecast/demand is because they are new products. so when these products are created, you can suggest to use an identifier initially when created.(example: MRP TYPE or some custom field in ECC) or ( Custom field in APO when transferred from ECC to APO)
Once the planner decides to forecast on them, a process can be put in place to assign a different identifier.
This can either be a job which the planner runs by inputting the products into this list or he sends the list of products to the IT ANALYST and he can run a MASSD in the background to change the identifier on these products
Examples of Identifiers: ADMIN TAB--PLANNER FIELDS , EXTRA TAB-custom fields, PROPERTIES TAB-Extra fields.
